Where does the time go?

I made this card last week for my daughter but I didn't want to post it until I was 100% sure that she got it first!  I can't believe she is 20!  Remember the challenge a week ago?  Well, I had so much fun getting my #10 size card ready to the challenge that I decided to make another one!  Dimensions are listed below so you can give it try too!

Here's what I came up with:

Frame was cut at 2 1/2", Banner at 3" from Art Philosophy cartridge.
Doll and layers were cut at 3" from Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.
Numbers are from Cricut Alphabet, cartridge on the Expression 2, cut at 1".

Here's what I did to the inside. I little of stamping on white cardstock with plenty of room to write a message.  I love sending and getting letters and think it's becoming a lost art.

These were just cut by hand from coordinating design paper.
I do hate cutting by hand, but I love my daughter so what do you do!

Playing with my new Peachy Keen stamps.
I am LOVING these!

This is actually layered onto a chipboard piece in the Art Philosophy bundle and sponge inked.

Card Base: PTI Orange Zest 4" X 9 1/4" (folded)
Card front:   PTI Terracotta Tile 3 3/4" X 9, "DCWV 'Citrus stack' 3 1/4" X 8 3/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa, more from 'Citrus Stack', white
Ink:  SU Pumpkin Pie, PTI True Black (my favorite black!), Dusty Durango
Stamps: PTI Background Basics: Twinkle (dress) & Women of Life, Peachy Keen 'Everyday Character'
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & SU Square Lattice and D'Vine Swirl embossing folders, Cricut & Art Philosophy and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridges, PTI Orange Zest ribbon, CTMH Dimensional Elements Banners, brads

The hardest part of making a card this size is getting a good picture!
